Is the Dean camp trying to set up Wes Clark? (Yep, I’m talkin’ about you, Joe!) This piece in today’s Post says Dean and Clark “discussed the vice presidency at a weekend meeting in California.” Read down into the article and there doesn’t seem to be that much there there. But the story got picked up on CNN too. And now the story of the day is not those very active discussions Clark is having about his own presidential run, but the potential ‘Dean/Clark alliance’. And if Clark decides to get into the race after all, doesn’t that mean that he wobbled, that as recently as this week he was thinking of taking the number two slot from Dean, or endorsing Dean? (His opponents want to play to the ‘indecision’ meme, remember.) I think that’s what some people would like us to think. The Post calls those people “sources familiar with the [Dean/Clark] discussions.” But I think we can imagine who those folks might be.
